General Information


This program is for graduates of Psychiatric Nursing Programs.

  1. The curriculum is designed to be taken over two calendar years. With approval, students have up to three years from the time of admission to complete the requirements for this program. Normally, students who do not complete the program within three years will be required to withdraw.
  2. Students are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their registrations. Particular care should be exercised regarding prerequisite courses. Students are responsible for adjustments in registration made necessary by reexamination results.
  3. Placements can be made anywhere in the greater Edmonton area (Devon, Fort Saskatchewan, Leduc, Morinville, St Albert, Sherwood Park, Spruce Grove and Stony Plain) or as far away as 150 kilometers. Students are responsible for their transportation to practice placements and for the costs of travel and accommodations.
  4. Students must purchase a stethoscope, penlight and a lab coat. A uniform will be required later in the program.
  5. Clinical practice may include shift and weekend rotations.
